COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our darkest year round beer however, looks can be deceiving. Dunkel features notes of chocolate with a full malt back bone. Contrary to its dark color, this beer finishes crisp and clean with a round hop flavor. 5.4% alcohol by volume.

[5284-20130428] Tap. Light chocolate grains aroma. Clear, mahogany amber body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Watery malt grain flavour has a cardboardy booze note in the finish. Medium body. Not really a fan because of the odd alcohol-cardboard base. (6/3/5/3/11) 2.8

bellco33 (169) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 16, 2013
On tap (flight sample) at Trapp Family Lodge: Pours a very dark brown with a little cream-colored head. Aroma is light, but tones of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is more of the same, but it coated the mouth well and was very smooth. Like all of their beers, it was not as sweet as I would have guessed by the style (which is a huge plus). Nice medium+ body, Great beer.

On tap @ the brewery. Pours a hazy amber brown with a thin creamy off white head. Aroma of brown sugar, chocolate, and roasted malt. Taste is nice creamy, roasted malt, burnt sugar, and nice subtle bitterness in the finish.

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
Tap: Poured a clear dark brown color lager with a small dark foamy head with average retention. Aroma of chocolate malt notes is very nice with light dry notes also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by chocolate malt notes with light dry roasted malt notes and light caramel. Body is somewhat thing with average carbonation. Nice level of complexity with great drinkability factor.

Aroma: very mild nose, mild dark roast, touch of black chocolate, dark malt behind. 6+
Look: poured as clear dark brown with contrasting lighter white top. Presentable.
Taste/Body/Palate: medium bodied with thinner walls. Stout like dryness , clean cut, straight brew. To me more like Schwartz than dunkel. Very nice offering.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2013
On tap at Trapp with Andy, Max, and Pearl. Pours a clear deep brown under a big dense foamy beige head. Faint paper (though apparently I was the only one to notice the paper in it), soft chocolate and cocoa. Medium bodied, chocolate hints light sweetness. Cocoa and a bit more paper. Certainly drinkable, but my least favorite of the ones we tried there.

Lukaduke (1742) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Draft at source. Pours a rich mahogany brown color with bready caramel malts and rustic grain on the palate. Stale cracker, undercarbonated with a touch of oxidation.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
2013-04-28. Crisp dark brown body, nice tan head and lace. 4+ Aroma is modest, molasses and toasty roast malt. Flavour has modest toast and roast character throughout, lightly nutty accents. Borders on porter territory at times. Lingering dry roast and dark malt in the finish. Smooth average plus bodied palate. Pretty decent. Started to get some slightly odd undertones as it warmed up though. On tap at Farmhouse, Burlington.

MadRobin (1694) - Silver Spring, USA - FEB 9, 2013
On tap in the lounge at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, VT. Clear, with a hint of haze, ruby brown with small khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of grain, caramel, roasted malt and toffee. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit, caramel and nuts. Medium body and high carbonation. Not very intense in any aspect, but overall a pleasant brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
